of the deficits, really. look what happened under george w. bush. he inherited surpluses, turned it into deficits as far as the eye can see with huge tax cuts to the millionaires and billionaires, huge. the very tax cuts our friends are defending right now. he did two wars on a credit card and we wound up in a mess. so we have to come together with the best ideas that we have, and i know we can reach agreement, but let us do the first step which is to take care of 98% of the people. the republicans want to have tax breaks for 100% of the people. we're saying can you take 98%? if i stopped you on the street and said i'm willing to give you 98% of what you say you want and you walk away from me and you attack me and you say i'm not ready to do anything, i honestly think people would scratch their head. so i think it is clear, the senate passed a bill to renew the tax breaks for 98% of the people. we are saying up to $250,000 in income, you go right back to those bush tax cut rates. but over 250, you go to the clinton rates. pay a little bit more so we can attack this deficit, so we can make the inv

the president was planning. joining us this morning, carlos gutierrez. former commerce secretary under george w. bush. also former director of hispanic outreach for the romney campaign. nice to see you, sir. thank you for talking with us. >> pleasure, soledad. >> this morning i was talking to senator blumenthal. he was sort of saying i'm optimistic, i'm hopeful. where do you see that? i don't know that i see optimism. >> no. i agree with you. i'm very disapoented. you know, the big picture is more than just the fiscal cliff. and a lot bigger than do we raise taxes on people who are there to make more than $250,000 a year. this is about the debt. it's about the fiscal deficit. it's about our economy. it's about our future. it's about our children. and president obama is playing a very risky game. because in the end, this is his presidency. and you're going to look back and have a bar chart of deficits and debt. and there's not going to be an asterisk that says it was the republicans' fault. i think we've got to stop playing poker, work together and understand we're working to save the country. >
. these tax cuts were enacted by george w. bush in 2001. still a bad idea then, i believe. at any rate, we had a surplus. it was sold to the american people because we have a surplus, we ought to give money back. we'll have the tax cuts across the board which benefitted mostly the wealthiest of americans. we knew that at the time. they were adopted as a temporary measure. what part of temporary doesn't john boehner understand? what part of temporary don't these republicans understand, right? i mean what is it about suddenly suddenly, it's become gospel. it is sacrosanct that you can never raise tax on the richest of americans. the very ones i'm one of them, who ought to be paying more in taxes. it is just insane! so they were attempted as a temporary measure and they're going to expire in ten years. why in ten years? because everybody knew in ten years things might change. we might no longer have a surplus and we might need the money. that's exactly what the case is today. president obama extended them for two
